In case you are wondering I am suffering from spinal stenosis or a slipped/herniated disc, so I haven’t been around much lately. Today is the first day I am able to get on a computer. Unfortunately, the pain meds made me sicker than the illness! Go figure right. So now I’m back to plain old ibuprofen and muscle relaxers. Please forgive me If I haven’t visited or commented in a while. I’ll be up and about soon, because nothing keeps me down for long!
Halloween is right around the corner and sometimes its fun to dress up as a favorite animal. Tigers have got to be one of the top choices. I’ve done a lot of face-painting and I found that Snazaroo face paint works the best. No, I wasn’t given anything to say that, I’m just speaking from experience. I really don’t like the greasy face paints and this kind is soft, dries on the skin and stays on till you wash it off.
Did you know that the stripes on a tiger are like fingerprints and no two are exactly alike? I painted this tiger from one at the national zoo.
Hopefully tigers will be around for a long time but as you can see from the list below tigers are very endangered:
Bengal tiger: Less than 2,000
Indochinese tiger: 750-1,300
Siberian tiger: Around 450
Sumatran tiger: 400-500
Malayan tiger: 600-800
South Chinese tiger: Extinct in the wild
Caspian tiger: Extinct
Javan tiger: Extinct
Bali tiger: Extinct
If you sporting a tiger costume this year, why not educate others about tigers and give to a wildlife preservation organization?
